cheap(er) chic: table covering

I think the decor that I was most stressed about for Thanksgiving was a table covering. I looked at all the local stores and really didn't want to spend an arm and a leg for a one time use tablecloth. So I actually wound up buying this burlap runner (as featured on style me pretty!) for a very reasonable price. However, if that fell though I was truly tempted to just use kraft paper.

It is inexpensive table covering option and definitely won't need to be immediately treated when stained with red wine.

you're so cute! i love the idea of using kraft paper. it's my most recent obsession...wrapping all my christmas presents in it. but kraft paper runners could be so great — and cheap — on wedding tables!
It looks great, I may try the brown paper idea, and maybe add some crayons at everyone plate for drawing.

Very cute idea, and you could put crayons out on the kids side so the can color during dinner :)

I love this idea, what a fun way to decorate a table! Also what could be more fun is having the guests create some art on the kraft paper once they had a few drinks! HA!
